Wedding Spotlight: Laurel & Zach

Janet Fernandez

It's hard to believe one year has gone by since the beautiful wedding of Laurel and Zach! Laurel and Zach were an exceptional couple to assist in the wedding planning process and we are so excited to share a few details into their special day!

Some of our favorite moments of this day include watching Laurel's two sweet little boys get ready with Zach and his groomsmen, along with witnessing Zach surprise Laurel with a handmade and heartfelt Valentine. He also included a Fitbit so they could track all of their steps as they danced their wedding night away!

As a planner, it was wonderful to see the couple include traditional Jewish wedding rituals such as the Tish, Ketubah, and the Bedeken. Another unforgettable moment was watching the expressions on all of the guests' faces as Laurel's sons walked down the aisle towards the beautiful chuppah to the booming sounds of The Imperial March from Star Wars - it was absolutely adorable!


The homemade Challah was on point and the reception was full of dancing! Of course there was a very lengthy and triumphant Horah! Wishing Laurel, Zach and their growing family a very Happy Wedding Anniversary and wonderful life together!
